What the students will be working on this week

Team #2: Myanah, Sophie, Reilly, Keegan, Will
UP: Since having strangers come to your home might cause an increase in home robberies how might we encourage people to meet in public places so that strangers are not entering the employees houses in the year 2045 in Dallas, Texas.
Team #3: Sofia, Maya, Amelia, Tabitha
UP: Since switching jobs frequently might result in employees not building close relationships with their coworkers how might we encourage employees to take time to get to know one another so that the employees have improved workplace satisfaction in Dallas in 2045
Team #4: Caroline, Maggie, Aidan, Isaac
UP: Since fluctuating work hours may result in parents not being able to commit to weekly activities such as coaching their children's teams, how might we encourage employees to provide employers with set blocks of weekly work-free time so that parents can schedule consistent time to be with their children in Dallas, Texas in 2045
Team #5: Christian, Jack, Peter, Sam
Since communicating in writing without facial expressions or tone of voice may cause miscommunication how might we encourage employees to speak to one another in person, on the phone or using Facetime so that communication problems are reduced in Dallas in 2045
